Are you familiar with the cosmetic dentistry known as dental veneers? Often called porcelain veneers (because they are made of long-lasting and durable porcelain), they are a great solution for many of our patients at Redford Dental Care in Carmichael, CA. Let us take a few moments to consider just what porcelain veneers are, what they can do and whether you are a candidate for porcelain veneers.

What Are They?

As a preferred dentist in Carmichael, we often meet with our patients to discuss any number of dental issues. One of the most frequently mentioned topics is the look of the teeth and gums. Lots of people are unhappy about specific issues with their smiles, and because of that, they want to hear what our cosmetic dentist has to suggest for treatment.

For many, it is a visit in which they learn they are a candidate for porcelain veneers. After all, using the treatment, a porcelain veneers specialist can address the following complaints:

  • Unevenly sized teeth
  • Oddly shaped teeth
  • Mildly misaligned teeth
  • Broken, chipped or cracked teeth
  • Teeth that are deeply stained and cannot be whitened

And it does not have to be an entire set or series of teeth that are correct with a porcelain veneer. Individual teeth can be supported with this cosmetic update.

Keep in mind that an ideal candidate for porcelain veneers is also someone hoping for a relatively fast solution to their dental issues. This is because the entire process is done with just two office visits. During the first, the teeth are prepared and molds made. Temporary veneers are placed, and the patient returns for permanent veneers when they come back from the lab. Just two visits and a new smile is possible.

Of course, a good candidate is also one who understands that veneers are a permanent solution. Small amounts of the dental enamel are removed to make way for the veneers, and this means that they are required forever afterward.
